Actress Samantha has said that Sivakarthikeyan’s rise from a television anchor to a wannabe actor to a superstar occurred right in front of her eyes and that she was a witness to the latter’s meteoric rise in the industry as a bankable star.
Samantha took part as a special invitee as the audio-launch of the Telugu version of Sivakarthikeyan’s latest film Remo. Released in theatres in Tamil Nadu and elsewhere on 07th October, Remo was declared a super-hit within a few days of its release and happens to be the most money-grossing Sivakarthikeyan-starrer as on date.
R.D. Raja, the producer, is taking the film to Telugu audiences as popular Tollywood producer Dilraju has taken up the release and distribution rights in Andhra Pradesh and Telengana of the film’s Telugu-dubbed version. “I have never seen a star turning into a superstar except in Sivakarthikeyan’s case and am a witness to his meteoric rise from a television anchor to a superstar.
“I wish him all the very best on this occasion; though he is a huge star, he is down-to-earth and is a nice guy. I came to this function only because of this factor. The kind of publicity attached to the Telugu version of Remo makes it look like a direct Telugu film. I wish everyone huge success with this,” Samantha said and gave a warm, friendly hug to Sivakarthikeyan!
